No, I haven't lost my mind. I know it is Monday. The universe did not want me to post this on Friday for some reason.
I misplaced my camera cord and was super busy, so I figured I'd wait until Monday to post.
Not the end of the world, right?
Yes, I'm trying to convince myself right now. I know you don't care. You just want some yummy recipes :)
Here's one that comes from my Aunt Norma.
Aunt Norm (as I call her) is one of the best story tellers I know. I don't mean that in a lying sort of way. She actually recounts events in a fascinating way.
She has lots of stories to tell, because she loves to travel all over the world. Her and my Uncle Bob are on a cross country RV trip as we speak. Um, or as we type. No, as I type. Yeah.
So this is her Mississippi Mud Cake that she used to make my cousin Matt on his birthday every year. My Mom has also made this recipe a time or two.
I don't think either one has desecrated it with heart cookie cutters, though. That's my contribution.
Mississippi Mud Cake
makes a 9x13 cake
1 cup butter
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup coconut
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 small jar of marshmallow creme
Combine all ingredients and beat with a mixer. Bake at 350 degrees in a greased 9x13 dish for about 45 minutes.
When cake is still hot, top with marshmallow cream and cool for about an hour.
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup walnuts
6 tbsp milk
1 box confectioners sugar
Stir all of this up and top the cake. Garnish with walnuts or sprinkles ;)
Cut it into hearts with a cookie cutter before icing if you want.
Thanks, Aunt Norm for the recipe!
